From 1950 to 1955, every Sunday night NBC's Colgate Comedy Hour presented live musical variety television featuring the top names in vaudeville, theater, radio and film. In this 1954 production of the famed Cole Porter musical comedy “Anything Goes,” Frank Sinatra and Ethel Mermen made their television debuts, belting out classic tunes in this blockbuster song and dance production. Set on a luxurious ocean liner, a nightclub singer helps a fellow American woo an English heiress while flappers and gangsters run amok in this spectacular tale of jazz age madness.
This appears to be a kinescope of an old black and white television program. It is a condensed version of the musical, and not very satisfying for true fans of Cole Porter.Published 3 months ago by Joseph A. Tringali
This slice of history is really dreadful. It is supposed to be a showcase for the talent of the main actors. It is poorly staged. If you wanted to see a 'story', don't watch this. Read morePublished 4 months ago by Christopher E. Reid

A little too condensed. I recently saw the show. It was twice as long as the video.Published 5 months ago by Bennett I. Bardfeld
Only thing that resembles the stage version is some character names and the songs.Published 6 months ago by Terri Ferguson
Not what I was expecting. It's just a cheesy TV show. So if you're nostalgic for it great if you are looking for more you may want to give this one a miss.Published 6 months ago by Mr W.
See past the grainy black and white telecine picture quality - the sound quality is quite decent though - and marvel at pure talent
